The Oriental Hand Massage accredited course is a massage of the hand, arms & shoulders using oriental massage techniques. It combines Eastern Hand Massage techniques, reflexology as well as acupressure. The hand contains many thousand sensory nerve endings which makes them one of the most sensitive areas of the body. A great course to learn as a treatment on its own or to incorporate new techniques into a manicure or body massage.
